    Fantastic skimmer

    By Candyman on Feb 13, 2021

    I was hesitant on buying this based on mixed reviews.. but i have no suml on my 135 gallon reef tank. Its an old tank built in 1982 and im not about to drill it for a sump. So i decided to try this skimmer out. I got it for 50$ with the autoship and 15$ coupon. First off i will say its BIG 27 inchs long so make sure you have a tall tank thats at least 20 inchs tall otherwise it might not fit. Now i had issues like alot of people getting it to skim. No matter how much i adjusted the bubbles it would fosm only half way up the neck and then drop down. After observing it for an hour or so i noticed the collection cup leaks inside the skimmer. No i dint mean it leaks outsude and I was hesitant on buying this based on mixed reviews.. but i have no suml on my 135 gallon reef tank.

No matter how much i adjusted the bubbles it would fosm only half way up the neck and then drop down. After observing it for an hour or so i noticed the collection cup leaks inside the skimmer. No i dint mean it leaks outsude and in the floor. I mean what happens is the positive pressure of the bubbles goes under the cup and leaks out inti the skimmer. This leaking causes the bubbles to drop in the tube. Everytime i see it leak it drops. So i cane to the conclusion that the issue. All i did was add a thin rubber band to the top of thr neck of the collection cup. Then put it back on the skimmer. The leaking stopped. This acts a o ring. Immediatly the bubbles went up the neck in the cup and then go into the cup. After some adjustments of the bubbles it started skimming really good. Almost too good. Within 5 hours my cup was full of yellow funky liquid. I have had the skimmer for 2 days now and ive had to empty it twice now. Each time its foul smelling yellow liquid. This skimmer works great !! If you read this review.. just do what i did.. add a rubber vand to the collection cup neck.. make sure its flat and not twisted and on the top of the neck.. and dont use a super thick rubber band. After this it should work. You also need to adjust the bubbles si you see millions of bubbles swirling in the big tube. You want micro bubbles.. not large bubbles.. so adjust accordingly The skimmer isnt noisy. It isnt the skimmer or the maxijet that are noisy.. its the bubbles adjusment thats noisy. There are mods for that if you look it up online. All skimmers have this issue. Its a simple fix. I honestly dint know why anyone else noticed what i noticed after only an hour if having this.. instead people cry and give bad reviews and return it. Just give it a try you wont regret it. I attached some pics of the rubber vand thing so you guys know what im talking about … more

    Instant Ocean Protein Skimmer

    By Steven on Jan 1, 2021

    For a protein skimmer that is around this price it is okay, I was scared to buy this because of the reviews it had on it. Most people saying that the noise the pump makes is unbearable when I bought it and turned on the pump (not in the water) it was freaking loud. When I added it into my fish tank it was not as loud as it was outside of the water but give it 3 days. Im on my third day with it in and the noise from the pump i can barely notice now and it is less louder than it was. The only issue i have with it is the microbubbles that comes out and makes the fish tank look dirty but no worries theres videos on how to get rid of the bubbles and make your water look clean but it works perfectly For a protein skimmer that is around this price it is okay, I was scared to buy this because of the reviews it had on it.

    Seaclone Protein Skimmer

    By Eileen on Apr 27, 2020

    I've used this product for years on my saltwater fish tank. The tank is extremely heavy and this is the only protein skimmer that I have used due to the impossible task of moving the tank farther out to accomodate a different one. This protein skimmer is easy to use - and this is no reflection on Chewy - but the product itself has been made more cheaply over the years, and I have to replace it about once a year, which is disappointing. That said, I'm grateful that Chewy carries this, for a very fair price, and it arrived pretty quickly, especially with the shipping delays these days with COVID. 5 stars to Chewy!

    Dollar for Dollar it does a great job.

    By jdl96ce on Sep 15, 2019

    My tank is a 55 show live rock fish only tank. I have had 2 of these skimmers in the last 6 years. They require very little maintenance and perform better than expected. Set up is easy, dialing it in to optimum efficiency is simple and only takes about 8 hours. It only gets a little noisy when it needs serviced. That only takes me about 20 minutes every 2 months.

    Yes, it does work

    By Kapi on Jul 7, 2019

    There are lots of mixed reviews on this skimmer. I bought it for a test tank and did not want to spend a lot of money. Good news, it does skim, it will produce skim mate and in my case within a couple days. What is the secret? The pump is very weak and must be within 2 inches from the surface of the water for adequate air to mix with the water. Open the air intake all the way, then slowly turn it in until the water just starts to flow. There really isn’t enough fine control to produce the dark, thick skim mate everyone wants, but it will skim and clean your tank. Bad news. It is wicked LOUD. I would not want to be the fish that lives in a tank with this as a hang on. In the sump the There are lots of mixed reviews on this skimmer.
